GRANGE

GRANGE, A FRENCH BRAND
WITH 100 YEARS IN BUSINESS AND AN INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION

In 1904, the Church in the village of Saint Symphorien-sur-Coise in the hills around Lyon placed an order for a set of pews with a small cabinetmaking workshop headed by Joseph Grange. The pews were duly delivered and news then spread around the area that the cabinetmaker of Saint Symphorien-sur-Coise had skilled hands. The orders began to flow in and the small workshop became a family business.

In homage to the company's founders, in 1970, the eponymous brand of Grange was created. In 1973, Grange made its initial move into international markets with the opening of its first store in Switzerland. Since then, the brand has continued to increase its presence beyond the borders of its home country. As a result of its outstanding expertise, it has enjoyed tremendous success and has even come to symbolise an art de vivre that is typically French.

Between 1980 and 2000 there followed the creation of American subsidiaries and shops in Russia, Australia, China and Eastern Europe. Attracted by the brand and its values, in 2002, the AGA Group invested in the company, in which it now holds a 95% share, thereby affirming Grange's already well-developed programme of international growth. Today, one hundred years after it all began, Grange retails through 19 own-brand shops, 60 concessions and 150 in-store outlets. The company employs 345 staff and has a presence in 45 countries, realising 80% of its turnover in exports.

At the same time, the company has successfully maintained production where it was first founded. It continues to safeguard its unique expertise and carries on the traditions particular to French cabinetmaking.
